SENIOR CLASS HISTORY
In the fall of 1943, forty-two shy and frightened boys and girls
falteringly wound their way up the long stairs to the high school assembly to
become enrolled in the Freshman class. One of the high lights of that fall
was our initiation. The girls were required to wear overalls and shirts back-
wards, a boy's cap and were not allowed to wear make-up. The boys were re-
quired to wear girls's shoes, dresses, kerchiefs, jewelry, and make-up. The
sophomores entertained us with a party. Later we had a party for them in re-
turn. Genevieve Dangel and Alvin Eisenbeisz were the Queen and Marshall Can-
didates for our carnival. In the spring we had a picnic at Edward's Grove
The time was spent in games followed with a Wiener roast. At the end of that
day the tired but happy freshmen wound their way home.
In our sophomore year thirty-three students returned to school. During
the year Loretta Blumhardt and Tillie Gabriel joined our class. Art Lassle
left us due to illness. Betty Thurn and Gordon Diedtrich were the Queen and
Marshall candidates for our carnival and were elected Cossack Queen and Mar-
shall for the year 'Mb-'45, In the spring we had a picnic at Spring Lake.
The main events of that day were boat riding and playing kittenball. The only
misfortune of the day was that Rose Glatt fell into the lake while boat riding
Having eventually reached our third year in high school we felt like real
ladies and gentlemen and decided to try to indicate our ability. One of our
first activities was ordering our class rings, which we received in January.
We had quite a time getting ready to give our play. Our play nDrums of Deathn
was given on January 19th and it turned out to be a great success. Loretta
Blumhardt and Gordon Stotz were Queen and Marshall candidates for the CarnivaL
The high light of the junior year was our formal Banquet and prom. The ban-
quet was held in the St. Paul's Lutheran Church parlors and the Prom in the
high school gym. Music was furnished by the Bill Klitz Orchestra. A grand
march was the high light of the evening. Having completed the Junior year we
left school in joyful anticipation of the senior year.
At the beginning of our senior year two members of the class were missing.
They were Lloyd Jones and Genevieve Dangel, A new member, Israel Stoecker en-
rolled. He was discharged from the Navy and came back to finish his senior
year. We were given the honor of initiating the Freshman. This was enjoyed
very much by all of the students and the faculty. In the evening the fresh-
men entertained us by doing various kinds of stunts. The rest of the evening
was spent in games and dancing. Lunch was served at the close of the evening.
LuVerne Sandmeier and Alvin Schuh were crowned Cossack Queen and Marshall of
Bowdle High School for '46-'47. A large crowd attended the Gala Affair. The
boys who participated in athletics were Gordon Stotz, Gordon Diedtrich, Alvin
Schuh and Alvin Huber. James Loebs, one of our most brilliant students, left
our class to move to Lodi, California to live with his parents. The main
events of the year were the senior class play, the Junior-Senior Banquet and
Prom and the Senior Skip Day at Bismark, North Dakota.
